Fantasy Book Review: The Mark of the Dragonfly

The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson

Piper has never seen the Mark of the Dragonfly until she finds the girl amid the wreckage of a caravan in the Meteor Fields. The girl doesn’t remember a thing about her life, but the intricate tattoo on her arm is proof that she’s from the Dragonfly Territories and that she’s protected by the king. Which means a reward for Piper if she can get the girl home.

The one sure way to the Territories is the 401, a great old beauty of a train. But a ticket costs more coin than Piper could make in a year. And stowing away is a difficult prospect—everyone knows that getting past the peculiar green-eyed boy who stands guard is nearly impossible. Life for Piper just turned dangerous. A little bit magical. And very exciting, if she can manage to survive the journey.

Piper is a gifted mechanic with a good heart. To help a young stranger, Piper leaves the only home she’s ever known into uncertain danger.

The Mark of the Dragonfly is an exciting, fast-paced story in a unique world. Full of danger, intrigue, drama, magic, and a bit of romance – this one was hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the story, and the incredible worldbuilding. Johnson’s world of steampunk/science fiction/fantasy is fascinating and complex. I can’t wait to read the upcoming companion novel, The Secrets of Solace.
